Emsworth is home to the Emsworth Lock & Dam on the Ohio River. It is administered by the US Army Corps of Engineers and is a key component of the regional economy, as it controls access to the Pittsburgh area.

Apparently this place incorporated as a separate governmental entity due to a desire by residents for better municipal services……go figure! The Post Gazette reports that this fight went to the PA Supreme Court and Emsworth defeated Kilbuck by decision.
